The Genealogy & Local History Room has well over 75 notebooks that contain maps, newspaper articles, essays, photos, and more about Winsted, Winchester, and other towns in Litchfield County.
The Notebook Collection for Winsted and Winchester is shelved together in one section. The notebooks in this collection are frequently updated, and, although they do not circulate, copies may be made of the pages. For easy copying, the pages are in protective plastic sleeves.
Notebooks for Barkhamsted, Colebrook, New Hartford, Norfolk, Torrington, and other towns are shelved with each town's history books. Some of these notebooks include headstone inscriptions and newspaper articles written by the town's historian.
The G&LH Room also has an extensive collection of CT town history books, CT file folders, and books about the genealogy and history of other states. See "Other Resources" for more information.
